Remote proctoring is being offered for the January 2022 Evaluating Examination. PEBC introduced remote proctoring during the global pandemic to allow candidates to test safely and within the timeline they planned. As the pandemic persists, test centre seats will continue to be limited and subject to cancellation at any time leading up to the exam. PEBC strongly encourages all candidates to prepare the requirements to take the exam by remote proctoring. Remote proctoring may be the only option to test. If you are unable to schedule in a test centre, or your test centre appointment is cancelled due to public health restrictions, and you do not elect to test by remote proctoring, your application and fee will not be moved to the next session and you will need to withdraw from the exam. Standard PEBC Refund Policies will apply.
To prepare for remote proctoring, please see Remote Proctoring information.
